How to Design a Flyer for a Memorial Service

The grief of losing a friend, family member or acquaintance can be difficult and many people rely on a memorial service to share their feelings and give each other strength. Let the public know about an upcoming memorial service by designing a flyer (also spelt flyer), a simple one-page publication with information about the event. A variety of software programs make it a quick process to create a memorial service flyer so you'll be able to hand out the materials and get on with the grieving process.

Skill level:Moderate

Things you need

Microsoft PublisherDigital photoWindows PaintMicrosoft Word

Instructions

1 Open Publisher and click the "Flyers" button. Scroll through the flyer templates; there is no memorial service template, but any design may be completely customised. Double-click a flyer design or an "All" folder and double-click a template inside. The flyer opens in the Publisher workspace.

2 Click once on the picture included with the flyer. Press the "Delete" key to remove it. Click the "Insert" tab at the top of the screen. Select the "Picture" button. Browse to a picture of the departed person and double-click the file name. When the picture appears on the flyer, drag it into place.

3 Highlight the main heading on the flyer. Type directly over it with the memorial service headline, such as "Please join us to honour the life of Rose Herman." Type over additional text boxes on the flyer to include details about the departed's life, family and history.

4 Click into the contact information text boxes and type over them with information about the service, including who is invited, time, date and location, dress and whether donations are being accepted.

5 Click the "File" tab at the top of the screen. Select "Save As." Type a name for the flyer and save it to the computer.

1 Open Paint, click the Paint button and select "Open." Navigate to a photo of the person being memorialised and double-click the image so it opens on the Paint workspace. Click the Paint button again and select "Properties." Change the "Width" to 8.5 and the "Height" to 11. Select the "Inches" button. Click the "OK" button. When the Paint workspace changes to flyer size, drag the photo into place on the top or middle of the flyer.

2 Choose a colour from the "Colors" section of the ribbon/toolbar. Click the "A" icon for the text tool. Click the top of the flyer. Select a font and text size. Type the main flyer message, such as "Memorial Service for Max, Saturday."

3 Click the cursor lower on the flyer. Change text colours and font sizes, if desired. Type additional service information, including directions, an inspirational lyric or passage and how to contact the family.

4 Select a new coloured square. Click the "Fill with colour" tool, which looks like a paint bucket. Click anywhere on the white space of the flyer to fill it with a background colour. Skip this if printing on coloured paper.

5 Click the Paint button. Select "Save As." Give the flyer a name and save it to the computer.

1 Open Word, which automatically defaults a blank flyer-sized 8.5- by 11-inch document. Type the memorial service headline, such as "Say Goodbye to Francis with Friends." Highlight the headline and click the "Home" tab at the top of the screen. Use the controls in the "Font" section to enlarge the headline, change its colour and apply a new font.

2 Press the "Enter" key a few times to leave space below the headline. Click the "Insert" tab at the top of the screen. Select "Picture." Browse to a photo of the person who passed away and double-click to open the picture on the flyer. Press "Enter" again to leave space below the image.

3 Add the person's name, birth date and, if desired, date of death. Type information about the memorial service, family contact information and directions to the service.

4 Click the "Page Layout" tab at the top of the screen. Select the "Page Color" button in the middle of the ribbon/toolbar. Click a small coloured square to give the flyer a coloured background. Skip if printing on coloured paper.

5 Click the "File" tab and select "Save As." Name the flyer and save it to the computer.
